The popularity of IMAX is increasing, hopefully far enough to jump ahead of the popularity of 3D. Recently Lionsgate released The Hunger Games in Digital IMAX. For those that don’t know, it was digitally retrofitted for the IMAX screen. But there are some films that are shot using IMAX cameras, something that Christopher Nolan is a huge proponent of. Now The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be presented in its full IMAX glory.
THR reports that Francis Lawrence will begin shooting the film this fall, with the intent on using IMAX cameras for certain scenes in the film. Now I have to go and reread the box to see which parts can been seen in IMAX.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, and Donald Sutherland are all reprising their respective roles in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Philip Seymour Hoffman has reportedly been offered an important role on the film. The film is expected to open in theaters on November 22, 2013.
